Florists Kicking into Overdrive for Mother's Day

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Mother's Day is Sunday and local florists tell us they are kicking things into overdrive.

The owners of Bella Fiore on Yakima Avenue say it's actually their biggest week of the year.

They say they see more orders during mother's day week than they see on Valentine's Day, which is the single busiest day of the year for the shop.

"Probably not everyone has a loved one to send something for Valentine's Day or a sweetheart, but Mother's Day, you know, most people have a mother and they probably need to get something for them," says Bella Fiore Owner Donnie Tongate.

Many of these shops don't just send flowers but also offer chocolates, stuffed animals, and a number of other kinds of gifts.

They say they ship out and deliver hundreds of packages throughout the week.
